Honoring the memory of "Andreas Hilboll"
One year after the sudden loss of our colleague Dr. Andreas Hilboll,
the Laboratory for Modeling and Observation of the Earth System (LAMOS) of
the University of Bremen (Germany) and the Environmental Chemistry Processes
Laboratory (ECPL) of the University of Crete (Greece) offer four (4) Andreas Hilboll
travel awards to honor the memory of Dr. Andreas Hilboll and strengthen the
collaboration between the two laboratories and Universities.
Andreas was a talented young scientist, motivated to achieve a better understanding
of air pollution and climate change and educate the next generation of students.
He was an excellent and dedicated researcher, a highly intelligent individual,
an inspiring teacher, and a passionate advisor. Most importantly, Andreas was an
extremely kind and generous person who cared for others and was always available
to discuss problems and find solutions. Dr. Andreas Hilboll was a well-respected
and much-liked member of the international atmospheric chemistry community.
Details on the scholarship
LAMOS (University of Bremen) and ECPL (University of Crete)
Financial aid for up to one-month travel visits that will take place between
1.9.2021 – 1.9.2025. Two (2) of the travel awards will support Master or PhD
student's visits from the University of Bremen to ECPL at the University of
Crete and the other two (2) will support Master or PhD students from the University
of Crete to visit LAMOS at the University of Bremen. The four travel awards
will be distributed over the mentioned four years period so that one travel
award will be allocated per year. A short report on the research stay has to be
submitted within four weeks after the end of the trip.
Travel fund amount
The travel award will cover the round trip flight ticket and additional maximum
costs of 750 EUR for accommodation and meal allowance for the stay to Bremen/Heraklion
for a period of up to one month.
Who can apply
Master or PhD students registered at the University of Bremen and Crete and working
on a relevant scientific topic to air pollution, remote sensing, chemistry-climate
(forward/inverse) modeling. Applications can be made every year until May 30. They have
to contain a one-page application letter explaining the scientific scope of the visit and a
short cv of the candidate. Please send your application by e-mail to both:
